In Not Yet Titled, the association of the word with the image is seen as arbitrary rather than necessary. Chosen from a set of found postcards of unfamiliar landscapes, the use of images as common bearers of contextual knowledge and visual references remains somewhat obscure. The presupposed primacy of text over image is challenged in the pending title of the work, it postponing the immediate correlation between text and image. The resulting composition of the framed pieces undoes the standard format of captions appending an image. By contrast, the status of the text is literally elevated by positioning used Letraset sheets into frames above the images.
